Kellie Carollo is a clean beauty connoisseur, a makeup artist and one of 146 Clean Beauty Award Judges. She discovered the dark side of the beauty industry early on in her career. After suffering from migraines for three years, Kellie made the connection between harsh ingredients and her well-being, choosing tp transition to a non-toxic lifestyle. She has spent the past five years advocating for and educating others on the importance of choosing clean every step along the way.
With her sensitive combination skin, Kellie is always on the hunt for the most hydrating & nourishing products on the market. As a judge for the face mask category of the 2022, Kellie was keen to evaluate the performance of face masks that fit her unique skin type. When we asked Kellie to choose her top three, there was no hesitation. ByROE Golden Carrot Overnight Relief Mask, Nu Skin Epoch Yin & Yang Mask and Retreatment Botanics Instant Glow Face Mask were her top choices and we can see why…
Favourite Beauty Mask #1: BYROE Golden Carrot Overnight Relief Mask
BYROE's ultra-creamy overnight relief mask envelops the skin in a moisture-locking embrace, intensely hydrating, brightening, and soothing reactive skin with antioxidant-rich carrot, vegan collagen, and reparative onion and ginger. Gently fortify your moisture barrier and restore a healthy radiance to troubled skin while you sleep.
As the number one mask on Kellie’s list, this mask offered some pretty impressive results.
“It made my skin feel insanely soft and smooth immediately after use and eliminated a lot of texture and dullness. I love the screw-off cap [for ease of use] and the mask's consistency. The packaging is so luxurious! I could tell they placed a lot of care and intention into their branding & aesthetic.”
Favourite Beauty Mask #2: Nu Skin Epoch Yin & Yang Mask
Whether its deep within yourself, in the wellbeing of your skin, or the world around you, balance is beautiful, and something we all pursue. The soothing ritual of the Epoch® Yin and Yang Mask by Nu Skin can help you find it. Take a moment for yourself, let your mind wander and relax while this special mask detoxifies and nourishes your facial skin for that lit-from-within glow, leaving you perfectly balanced, both inside and out.
Kellie’s second choice stood out as an incredible detoxing mask.
“This is one of the best charcoal masks I've tried because it wasn't over-drying like so many tend to be. My skin was left feeling super clean and like the pores were purged. It minimized the pore appearance significantly! I LOVED that as I massaged the mask into the skin, I could see the charcoal activate.”
Favourite Beauty Mask #3: Retreatment Botanics Instant Glow Face Masque
The Retreatment Botanics Instant Glow Face Masque provides instant radiance to the skin. It is a nutrient-rich clay masque that visibly brightens and renews. It gently exfoliates with AHAs derived from fruit acids and papaya enzymes providing instant luminosity. A gentle and hydrating masque this product doesn't crack and dry hard on your skin, making it perfect for all skin types including dry and mature, as well as oily and combination.
“It left my skin feeling bright & smoother immediately after one use. Truly instant gratification. I found that it exfoliated dead skin & revealed brighter, smoother skin underneath.
The faint fruit scent wasn't overpowering, and the consistency was easy to apply.
